"Infest" as written by Tobin Esperance, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton and David Buckner....
My name's Coby Dick
Mr. Dick if you're nasty
Rock a mic with a voice that's raspy
'Cause I'm poetic in my operations
My God-given talent is to rock all the nations

Infest, the theory of my first manifesto
Push ya wig back with my lyrical pistol
Blow now Papa Roach is on your mentel
Bangin' like your head piece
It's just that simple
Cock back and unleash with my physical
Wrap you in my thoughts
And become indivisible
Centrifugal, forces individuals into my mind
As we rock into ritual

You better do just what we say
And if you don't then you will pay

[Chorus]
We're going to infest
We're getting in your head
What is wrong with the world today
The government, media, or your family

Now, that I got your attention
Did I forget to mention
All the heads we be infesting
Hope y'all people learn your lessons
'Cause the game of life is crazy
Got all the people guessin'
What is wrong with the world today
The government, media, or your family
Would you cry if I died today
I think it be better if you did not say

You better do just what we say
And if you don't then you will pay

[Chorus]

First, they shackle your feet
Then they stand you in a line
Then they beat you like meat
Then they grab you by your mind

We will infest, die like the rest
People are the problem today

[Chorus]

    General CommentI quote, Straight from Coby Dick...

    "This song's promising that we will infest. We always start the live shows with it. The chorus is pretty much "We're going to infest/ We're getting in you head." We ask what's wrong with the world today, the government, the media, your family. If you look at the rest of the album, there's a song that has to do with the government, a song about how media affects people and a song about your family. So this one's a opening dialogue; it's meant to open your head up and see what's going on"

    General CommentThe song, in part, could be about how Papa Roach will rise to dominate the music scene, but I think in the end it evolves to a tune of the nonconformist.

    YOU BETTER DO WHAT WE SAY
    AND IF YOU DON'T THEN YOU WILL PAY

    The mainstream is forcing itself on Dick, who with his "first manifesto" sets the tone for the rest of his album. His following songs on the CD are filled with rants from the outcast and the misunderstood.

    FIRST, THEY SHACKLE YOUR FEET
    THEN THEY BEAT YOU LIKE MEAT

    More of the outside coercing itself on -- and destroying -- someone with nowhere to turn...

    Media, family, government are all forces collaborating to make people into other things, to make people into what they're not.

    General CommentGod, you guys. Coby said it himself

    "This song's promising that we will infest. We always start the live shows with it. The chorus is pretty much "We're going to infest/ We're getting in you head." We ask what's wrong with the world today, the government, the media, your family.

So this one's a opening dialogue; it's meant to open your head up and see what's going on"

    There's no between the lines BS, so stop trying to act like there is. The song means the band is going to get in your head, end of story!
